Many people have the habit of drinking tea or smoking post-meal. These habits can disrupt the nutritional balance of our meals. These habits hamper the nutrition absorption digestion process of your body

Many of us have the habit of eating anything after taking proper meals. But if we leave this habit of eating anything, it is going to benefit our health. Many people consume tea or coffee after eating a meal which is very harmful. Here are some things you should never do after eating a meal

Tea coffee - Drinking tea and coffee after having a meal is very good for our health. It should be changed as it causes problems in digestion. This habit is responsible for problems such as anemia, cold hands, and feet, headache, and loss of appetite. One hour before and after the meal, tea and coffee should not be consumed.

Eating fruits – Eating fruits right after a meal is also bad for your health. If your stomach is full and you start eating fruits, then you will face problems in digesting these fruits. Due to this, you will not be able to get full nutrition of fruits.

Drinking chilled water – Many of us have a habit of drinking chilled water with meals or after meals. But this should not be done. Drinking cold water after meals causes food to become a herd, this slows the digestion mechanism, and the body finds it hard to digest food properly. You should drink lukewarm water or room temperature water after 45 minutes of eating a meal.

Smoking – Smoking is injurious to health. Smoking right after eating food is much more harmful to our bodies. This may cause irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) that can further lead to ulcers.

Alcohol - Drinking alcohol immediately after eating is dangerous. It also affects the process of digestion. It is very harmful to the body as well as the intestine.

Taking a bath - Don't take a bath immediately after eating. Taking a bath right after eating causes a sharp decline in body temperature which affects the blood circulation in the body. Thus blood will no longer be able to help in digestion and will only be able to maintain skin body temperature.

Sleeping - Don't sleep immediately after eating. This can cause heartburn, sleep apnea, and snoring. Go for a walk after eating, and then go to sleep.

Workouts – To digest food your body needs energy and if you will invest this energy in exercise, it will slow down digestion. People may get nausea, cramp, or even diarrhea if they adopt the wrong habits.
